Querencia Cares

Established in 2023, the Querencia Foundation was created in recognition of the expanding needs of the local Los Cabos community. Serving as a vital bridge and working with established and vetted non-profit organizations in the community, the mission of The Querencia Foundation is to connect the immediate needs of our Los Cabos community to Querencia Members in order to make organized, positive change.
